Someone correct me if I am wrong, but from what I can remember 2.2.2 was
pretty buggy...  You may want to get 2.2.3a or above.  Current is 2.2.5

Subject: [Samba] permission issues afer upgrade from 2.0.7 to 2.2.2

Samba Gurus,

I've recently built a new Solaris samba server to replace an older one, the
older one is running 2.0.7 & the new one is running 2.2.2.  I pretty much
just copied over the the smb.conf file & made some small adjustments via
swat - the options are a bit different.    

The old server was just the way we needed it.....but now that the new server
has gone live it appears we are having numerous permissions issues....users
are reporting they cannot write to directories that they own or should have
access to because they are members of the unix group that has write
permission to a particular directory.   

Yesterday I was testing some settings & for kicks I changed the Create
Directory Mask to 777 from 775 on a particular share.....this actually fixed
one problem for a user - I thought it would be a band-aid until I could
learn more. But today the flood gates have opened & now other users that
could write things yesterday (before my change), cannot do so today...users
that actually OWN the directories!....(works fine from native Unix).

Any suggestions/ideas on what may be happening, and/or what differences
between 2.0.7 & 2.2.2 are that could be affecting this problem?

Thanks in advance!
